Tilda in the Christmas forest mk. 2!

Hi there peeps!
I told you I love this wee Tilda! Well No. 1 son is in the middle of his prelims (mocks) this week and our house is a very very very stressed house!! And that's just me!! Lol !!
So this fortnight over at Songbird challenges our lovely tune is "Deeper shade of Blue" by the one and only Steps! So that means the focus colour on your cards must be blue, neautrals are allowed to compliment.
Anyhoo I have used sweet Tilda in the forest again today, in less traditional colours.

I have coloured using my faithful Copics, of course the super cute image is magnolia, the snowflake around the edges are also a magnolia stamp, I have tried to go for a distressed look, although I do find this style Distressing! Lol!! The papers are some ancient Hot off the press papers, the trees are a magnolia do-hickey and the holly is a marianne die, both cut out of bazzil basics. I have followed the wonderful sketch over at Simon Says Stamp, I have used cheese cloth for the one layer.
The challenges I would like to enter are:
Tilda's Town - Anything goes
Mid- week Magnolias - I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Lovely hanglar only - Winter wonderland
Well that's all from me today, Take care!
Warm hugs
Jacqui P xx
